Bristol Head Shot Photographer

As a business person in the Bristol area the whole idea of needing a professionally taken corporate head shot may seem a little time consuming and non-essential to you.  But, if you think of corporate head shots as a marketing tool - a way to make a first impression that will ultimately help you generate new clients and therefore help boost your enquires and bookings, then your perspective may change.

With the increase in digital marketing and remote working, a professional corporate head shot helps not only current but also potential future clients feel more connected to you.  Someone, at some point, will be looking to do business with you over the internet and like it or not, people do judge the book by the cover.  Just like an actor, a good head shot shows that you take your business seriously.

A head shot is exactly what it says it is - a close up picture of your face.  A “good” head shot however is something that little bit extra.  But it can also be a head and shoulders portrait, a portrait taken showing you in your working environment, or even team members at a board meeting. Life is all about first impressions, especially in this day and age where you are likely to often be "meeting" people for the first time on-line, so you need to show yourself in your best possible light - literally. Lighting is key to having a good head shot and amateur head shots are pretty obvious because of this.  They look home-made and unprofessional.  They won't capture you in the best light or at the best angle.

A professionally taken head shot is vital because these are the things that we are skilled at doing.  It is not just about our knowledge of using expensive equipment to create quality images.  We know how to position you, how to evoke warm, spontaneous expressions, how to make you look friendly and approachable, but professional.


Whether it is for an individual business person or for a whole company team, Black Tie Portraits pride ourselves on being able to promote your unique strengths through professional head shots.  We can supply them as high resolution jpeg images for use on company literature, or low resolution images for use on websites.
